Earthquakes in very strange places! Mag 5.4 and a mag 4.8 west of Scotland reported by RSOE alert map

RSOE Alert map
We don't have quakes in the UK!
The RSOE alert map is showing two fairly large quakes today east of Scotland nearly 5,000 km from the nearest fault line and the quakes are quite large, a mag 5.4 and a mag 4.8.
In my years reporting quakes I have never seen one anywhere near here?
I went to USGS of course to check them out and they are reporting only the mag 4.8, no mention of the big one...
You can find RSOE Alert map here it's a cool site and very trust worthy and you can find USGS here.
